Around 10 kms from Gyalshing, Pelling is today emerging as the second biggest
tourist destination in the state after Gangtok. Although in itself it is little
more than a strip of road lined with hotels, its main USP is the breathtaking
view it offers of the Khangchendzonga and surrounding ranges, as well as the
easy access it provides to tourist spots in the area. Pemayangste monastery is
less than a kilometre from Pelling while a 40 minute walk on the hill opposite
the monastery takes you to Sanga Choling monastery built in 1697, one of the
first in the state.
